I have another new Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and Nicole Wright Designs creation for you today. They are loving CHA, and I am totally wanting to be there with them!
For today's card I used another new stamp set by Nicole called Upstream.
Once again, I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers and watercoloured the images. I used Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade.
After scanning and using Silhouette Design Studio to cut out multiple images.
Then I got all the pieces I would need to make my card. The little water reeds are actually a flourish from the Polkadoodles Bonbon Belles collection.
For my card today, I have tried something I first came across at Andie's blog Contagiously Crafty. It is a faux shaker card. She used, as did I, a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and HERE is the link to the tutorial.
I added the little fishes to the shaker element, and all the papers are from the Polkadoodles Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.
Inking all the edges of all the layers, and the fish, with Distress Ink Pad - Vintage Photo. For the inside I added two little Koi at the edge of the message panel.
Love how this turned out and so easy to add the shaker element.
I also added a dragonfly to the scroll sentiment again :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you will pop back again tomorrow for Day 3 :-)
I would like to apologize for the quality of the photos - they are really crisp on my computer, but for some reason blogger is altering them. I think if you click on the photo and enlarge they should look a lot crisper. Maybe :-)
